See how a 3M manufacturing plant in Hutchinson, Minnesota, streamlined preventive maintenance inspections while boosting detail and depth.
Safety & Inspection Manager streamlines the inspection process. It identifies each individual station, and applies a number and RFID tag. Technicians receive a list of inspection locations and expectations via a hand-held device or smartphone. With this list and RFID tagged equipment, they’re able to perform tasks with greater accountability and verification.
And they capture more standardized data. SIM is programmed with questions specific to each safety check. Users can expand on inspection metrics by adding real-time photos and comments to document historical context for why a particular inspection passed or failed.
SIM enhances monitoring and communication. It supports alerts for monitoring situations and gives users a clear way to refer issues to other responsible parties. Repair requests and maintenance issues are easily shared across areas and departments, complete with detailed data and photos for further clarification. Quick notification helps them reach closure or fix an issue much faster.
